Rihanna fans have been waiting patiently (and impatiently) for her eighth studio album ‘ANTI’ for more than a year.
The lead (and subsequent) singles from the project begun being rolled-out one year ago, and still the LP’s release is an Unsolved Mystery. Even after the model commenced her distraction tactic of a Samsung campaign for the set, it only seemed to cause more confusion.
Fast forward to today, and per her professional handbag Melissa Forde, it appears the album is still not finished.
See what we mean…
Forde shared the following studio shot on Instagram moments ago…
This, a day after, a highly placed member of her team posted another studio snap – implying that work on the record is on-going:

We’d like to think that the album is indeed finished and that this is an elaborate rouse designed to maximise the “surprise” factor whenever it drops.
Still, there have been so many junctions where that’s assumed to be the case and the simple reality was that the campaign was just a hot hazardous mess.
Jury’s out on what exactly is taking place, but we imagine something (for her sake) must be nigh. Surely, ‘ANTI’ will arrive before the ‘ANTI Tour’ kicks off next month?! Her band and dancers reportedly begun tour rehearsals while she was filming a movie in France (…) last. It’s anyone’s guess what they were practising if the music isn’t even finished.
